DAVAO City judoka Jenilou Mosqueda apologized for having failed to win any medal for the Philippines at the close of the 28th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games judo competition in Singapore.
Mosqueda, an alumnus of the University of Mindanao, beat Laos bet Manivanh Baiyan in the women's 52-57 kgs. event but lost her next two bouts to Xuan Yi Ang of Singapore and KhinKhin Su of Myanmar.
"Sorry sa performance ko pakisabi po sa lahat," Mosqueda said in a Facebook interview with Sun.Star Davao Monday.
She said it was her second meeting with Su in their bronze medal match.
The Dabawenya defeated the Myanmar player in their first encounter. "May bago syang technique na ginamit. Less na rin power ng left shoulder ko. Nastrain after nung una kong match. Naging superior na ang power nung nakalaban ko sa last match."
She added, "Malakas na rin talaga ang Myanmar, natutukan ng Japanese coach nila."
The 34-year-old Mosqueda said she still doesn't know what will become of her with the national judo team after the SEA Games defeat.
Mosqueda won a silver in the 2013 SEA Games in Myanmar and a bronze in Indonesia in 2011.
The national judo team ended its campaign in the bi-ennial Games with one gold and two bronzes. The gold was courtesy of Kiyomi Watanabe.
